|I'm trying to find a story I read a while back. My memory is that it was on the web somewhere.

It was the story of the new UN Secretary General, and how she (I think?) coped with the super villain / mad scientists claiming they were going to destroy the world. There were two villains in the story - one that she coped with, and another merely mentioned at the very end. She pointed out to the first one that 'this isn't science - where's your control group?', and convinced him to start a colony on Mars for the control group.

The implication was that she was going to convince all the super villain / mad scientists to fund/create something that the UN was trying to make happen, but didn't have the money for.

My GoogleFu is failing trying to find it. :-( Anyone recognize it, and have a pointer / title / author?
